Lokalist

Who we are Each year in Denmark, over 2 million people upgrade their smartphones, but few have a clear idea of what to do with their previous device. Of course, they could sell it or trade it in, but today these options are primarily perceived as a hassle, a scam, or a waste of time. This results in Danes often having two or more smartphones wasting in a dusty drawer. Our mission to reduce this waste and to make the best use of their potential by providing a transparent, fair, and simple way to ensure that our old technology gets used to its fullest extent. The user can then support sustainable causes through our platform with the value of their used phones. Why do we exist? Used phones are extremely valuable. In fact, every year we estimate that at least one billion kroner worth of used phones enters the market in Denmark alone. On top of this, smartphone production has tremendous environmental and social impacts that are seldom talked about. Making the best use of minerals and labor that has already been put into our phones is the least we can do. Through research, we found that most people do not sell or trade-in their devices today for various reasons. However, over 90% of people responded that they would donate the value that their used phone could be sold for, entirely or in part, to philanthropic causes so long as it was easy and transparent. Therefore, not only are the causes we support genuinely good, but they provide the motivation to awaken a large and growing market. Today there is no platform where this can easily be done. Lokalist aims to fill this gap in the market and be the platform where people and businesses can easily donate all or part of the value of their used technology to support sustainable actions we all want to see more of. What happens to the used phones? The used phones we receive are safely wiped, complying with Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). They then have a 92% chance to be refurbished or harvested for working components. The semi-new phones are sold in markets across the world to be loved by future users. The phones that cannot be refurbished are responsibly recycled, making sure to reuse minerals that are otherwise impactful to mine. Our values As a company, we focus heavily on integrating the Nordic values of transparency, honesty, community, and simplicity into our mission. This is not typical of our competitors in this space. By being active in the carrying-out of the sustainable causes with our partners, and showing our users instantly how their device could support them, we believe we can help make the best use of our e-waste while spreading the love.

Å JOBBE I LEARNLINK Learnlinks kjerneteam på 7 fulltidsansatte og 4 deltidsansatte driver selskapet fra dag til dag. Et erfarent og kompetent styre bidrar sammen med teamet til å stake ut selskapets retning, og de mer enn 300 personlige lærerne gjennomfører selve undervisningen. Vi har i tillegg et knippe dyktige rådgivere som bistår med alt fra kundeforståelse til strategi. Læring og utvikling i fokus Felles for alle som jobber i Learnlink er at vi er manisk opptatt av å lære. Vi legger opp til å vokse raskt fordi det er den beste måten å få jevn tilførsel av nye utfordringer på, og har en åpen dialog om hvordan vi selv og andre i teamet kan bli bedre. Påvirkningskraft Som et raskt voksende selskap i tidlig fase er det sjeldent mangel på utfordringer å løse eller områder å forbedre.

Datadrevet resultatorientering Vi bruker data aktivt i beslutningsprosesser og måling av fremdrift, og hver ansatt har ansvar for et knippe KPIer som definerer ansvarsområdene.

Det skal være komfortabelt å ta med seg både styrker og svakheter på jobb. Vi har mye sosialt i forbindelse med jobben, både planlagt og ad-hoc. ENGLISH In Learnlink, we make learning personal. As all children have different needs, it makes little sense to teach everyone in the same manner, which is why we provide learning that is tailored to the specific need of every child. Learnlink was founded in 2016 by three university students who experienced the tutoring market as old-fashioned and inefficient. Learnlink offers a tailored, personal one-on-one learning experience through their online platform in order to help children learn better and faster. As of 2020, Learnlink is the largest provider of online tutoring in Norway. More than 400 University students are engaged as tutors, helping thousands of children gain self-confidence, become motivated, and overcome learning obstacles.

Fresh.Land

Fresh.Land is a startup with a new model for the food industry. We developed a pioneering platform that shortens and digitizes the food supply chain. It allows farmers to sell fresh products directly to consumers, using the trees as their “warehouse” and cutting 3-5 middlemen. Our platform provides all the logistics, payment, legal, and knowledge required in one integrated solution. Fresh.Land was coined “truly pioneering” (WWF) and “one of the most promising green startups in Denmark” (Forbes). Our disruptive idea won the European Youth Award (Austria), EcoSummit Gold Winner (Germany), Nordic Cleantech Open (Sweden), WWF Climate Solver Award (Denmark), Portugal Digital Awards (Portugal), and Green Tech Challenge (Denmark). We have offices in Copenhagen and Portugal. The company is profitable and growing at a very fast pace. We are preparing to launch commercially in 8 EU countries. The management team includes former senior McKinsey consultants and senior executives from the food industry, with a proven track-record in building and exiting successful companies in the past. According to WWF, “Fresh.Land can save 88% of CO₂ from storage and reduce food waste by 10%, saving 12.7 million tons of CO₂ annually by 2026”. Our just-in-time model is at the forefront of the green transition in the food industry and fostering a shift to a more plant-based diet.
